The alien just married the Elvis clone for a green card.
That is a tabloid, not a news paper.
you’re a riot, Mr. Chatfield… just like Mr. Pastis
in the good old times there was the weekly world news. nowadays there is a guy named donald.
If only C&H readers could get that newspaper. It seems awesome already!
That won’t work. Unless you can get an exclusive on Area 51.
Aaahh, the Weekly World News. The sine qua non of tabloid journalism.
Sorry about the redundancy. Saw Ukko’s comment after I’d posted mine, but hitting the delete button does nothing.
Mr. Chatfield…please stay away from Mr. Pastis. He’s poison.
I’d like to read that story.
Hey – it’s on newsprint, right?
I don’t think his teacher will approve of that. For reasons some people don’t understand, teachers don’t like aliens and UFOs.
But Calvin’s Calvin. You can’t stop him!
Oh I loved the WWN. And National Enquirer. I’d get to read them whenever I would visit my grandmother.Bat Boy was a favorite. That kid could really get into mischief.
Didn’t I see that last night in the debate?
I remember doing something similar to this.
Makes more sense than the coverage of last night’s “debate.”
Genre fiction readers might like to try to find an anthology titled Alien Pregnant by Elvis, edited by Esther Friesner and Martin Greenberg. Science fiction and fantasy stories with titles that might have been taken from the sleazier tabloids, complete with exclamation marks. “Close-Up Photos Reveal JFK Skull on Moon!”, “My Husband Became a Zombie and it Saved Our Marriage”, “Is Your Co-Worker a Space Alien?” and others.
There really is not much left to explain.
David Letterman’s favorite trashbloid headline was always “Psychic’s Head Explodes!” You don’t have to really explain that one, either………….
The class is going to love this one.
After last night’s “program”, Webster’s Dictionary will be updating their definition of “debate”…
Hahaha How do I think Stephan Pastis is somehow involved in this?
When I was in college doing a Media Journalism course we had to read a current news story and tell it to the class. This was every Friday. If we didn’t come up with a current story then our “punishment” was to read and remember TWO news stories for next Friday!
